Iranian Majlis has adopted a single-urgency bill regarding Summer Time, proposing to change official time twice a year.
The MPs, during their weekly open session on Wednesday, approved that the official clock would change once at the beginning of the Iranian calendar year (March 21) and once at the start of the second half of each year (September 23).
Daylight Saving Time (DST) also known as Summer Time is used to ultimately save energy. It involves adjusting the official local time forward during the summer months, therefore moving an hour of daylight from morning to evening and once oppositely in winter.
Of the 196 votes cast, 121 were in favor of general outlines of the bill, 54 against and seven abstained.
